so our drain outside was blocked and causing a minor flood in the back yard. this happens a lot. the drains in this house are crappy anyway, but since we’ve had the husky it’s generally been because she’s taken the grate off - she considers it simply incorrect to have the grate there or something - and then dropped a destroyed tennis ball into it.
but the grate was in place. so maybe it was an excess of dog hair from her weekly bath. or maybe it was just being crappy again. or something.
finally arkady went out to investigate with the draining rods.
alba had removed the grate, dropped a destroyed tennis ball in, then put the grate back. so er she’s tidying up after herself. good?
i’m now imagining a future civilisation formed by a species evolved from huskies. crack-addled mechanics, communicating in a language whose atoms are bouncing and yapping.
